In order to enable an iCal export link, your account needs to have an API key created. This key enables other applications to access data from within Indico even when you are neither using nor logged into the Indico system yourself with the link provided. Once created, you can manage your key at any time by going to 'My Profile' and looking under the tab entitled 'HTTP API'. Further information about HTTP API keys can be found in the Indico documentation.
Additionally to having an API key associated with your account, exporting private event information requires the usage of a persistent signature. This enables API URLs which do not expire after a few minutes so while the setting is active, anyone in possession of the link provided can access the information. Due to this, it is extremely important that you keep these links private and for your use only. If you think someone else may have acquired access to a link using this key in the future, you must immediately create a new key pair on the 'My Profile' page under the 'HTTP API' and update the iCalendar links afterwards.

Nagy-Soper subtraction for NLO calculations: overview and applications
Aula Seminari (LNF)
Via Enrico Fermi, 40
00044 Frascati (Roma)
An alternative subtraction scheme for NLO calculations is presented, based on the formalism developed by Nagy and Soper in a new concept of parton shower with quantum interference. Based on the idea of collective reshuffling of partonic momenta, the new scheme helps to minimize the amount of subtraction terms necessary to match the singular structure of the amplitude. On the other hand, the integration over the phase space of the unresolved parton is challenging due to the structure of the phase space factorization. I will review the main concepts of Nagy-Soper subtraction and explain our semi-numerical strategy to evaluate the integrated subtraction terms for both massless and massive cases. Finally, I will discuss the overall performance of the new scheme in comparison with the standard Catani-Seymour subtraction in a number of practical applications within the HELAC-DIPOLES framework.
